I'm not trying to be a smarta$$ but I don't think they can afford it because Caps cap (Hehe) will be a tough nut next year.

If they sign Semin for 7 mill a year they will have a cap space of approx 22 mill to sign 11 players.

If I'm wrong on this show me.

Semin will be in LA....

Actually, their cap situation is setup perfectly...if they have another implosion in the playoffs, most of their team will already by UFAs... Instant rebuild.

He is a bit injury prone but I sure hope he will be with LA and healthier of course.

I'm heading for my bed now.

Why gamble on Kaberle doing anything at all? The guy is a nice offensive dman and that is all that he is. His defence simply isn't all that good especially for what he will want/get as a ufa. Why bother? I mean really, Tk simply makes no sense for us. We already have more than enough solid pmd types, what we need is a truly solid stay at home dman, one who can be a reliable escort for our up and coming pmd kids.

The whole "lets get another top 4 all star d man simply isn't what we need at all, not unless we want to move JMFJ and why would we ever do that?

Eklund on his podcast today said exactly the same thing, why add TK when we have Doughty, Johnson and a guy like Hickey in the minors....He even said we needed toughness in Mitchell.

If I read between the lines on the various trade rumors over the boards we are trading:

-Brown to Toronto for Kaberle and a schmuck, but we may have to add Hickey who may or may not be a bust, and the ever popular conditional pick.
-Trading JJ and Williams for Semin
-Trading Quick for Carter then trading Carter back to Philly for Quick, so we can trade Bernier for Carter, barring of course we don't land Kovalchuk (who is already signed by us, but we are waiting to announce it), and the fact that D.L is to busy to make the announcement as he is finalizing a deal with Mitchell. At least thats how I interpretated the rumors?
-We are then signing Ryan to an offer sheet conditional on the fact that Anahiem won't do the same for Doughty next year.
- Trading most our team or maybe just a single prospect for Penner
- Trading for Gaborik as Sather has a deal with Kovy
- standing pat and poaching Parise next year.
- did I say trading for Kaberle
- trading Stoll for the heck of it, because gritty, faceoff winning, centers that score 50 points a year seem to grow on trees to some.
- re-signing Randy Jones as in a couple weeks he will be the only free agent left! - and if I believe all the other rumors out there - he will refuse to sign in L.A as no one wants to play here.


I could fall into the trap and believe the rumors that D.L is a puppet being controlled by Tim L. This goes along with the D.L is to gun shy to pull a deal.

I guess I should sign up for twitter and get the latest true stories.

This has been the longest off season I can remember. It has felt like a roller coaster ride. We have Kovy, we don't, Kovy signs with the Debs, no he doesn't, we have him flying to L.A to announce a signing, he went home - maybe with his wife maybe not, wait his agent is maybe here, oh he left to, holy crap he signed with the Devils, Frolov is gone but within minutes we have Poni, what Kovy's contract is not legal, Are we back in it "Are you Kidding" . On top of this Greener's hurt, are goon is gone and his replacement is hurt.

I am too exhausted to know if I should be a disgruntled fan or if I should wait and watch how D.L magically fills to major holes in our line-up and some new minor ones.

All I know is I am a Kings fan and have been for sometime, whichever way this ride ends, opening day - I am still a Kings fan.

After you wrote this I thought I'll take a look on how many teams do have eleven players within 20 mill.

Doh!... Ehh.. pretty much every team has that so .

...Your Honor I rest my case due too stupidity.

So it would be enough if they move Fleishmann which reporters believe they will.

Well I for sure have learned a lot about cap space and cap hit this summer...thank you Kovy.

So Geeklund actually makes sense, I'll take that. I'm for Mitchell in this case. It's not that I like Kaberle, but he's contract is about up and I don't believe in overpayments.

Are we allowed to report rumours from Hockey24Hours? I know he's not very credible, but a couple of fun twitter posts by him to discuss regardless:

@hockey24hours:".....Willie Mitchell and Kings closing in on deal.."

@hockey24hours: "Source: Milan Lucic could be headed to LA Kings..Los Angeles and Boston involved in serious trade discussions involving the left winger..."

Lucic would be a good pick up at LW. I wonder what BOS is asking in return

Eklund still thinks that it will be Simmonds for Kaberle. And the Leaf fans don't think that is enough, they expect Bobby Ryan.

Whew, we can scratch that trade ever happening.

If Kings trade Simmonds they are really stupid.

Why would the Bruins trade Lucic, he is there best young forward besides Seguin.

I really don't think the Kaberle deal will be very big as some people are reporting. He's basically a 1 year rental. If la trades simmonds I won't be happy and there's no way in hell the ducks trade Ryan. Most gm's should just call burkes bluff

Ok, the Mitchell thing I can see happening, but Gaborik? C'mon now. What could the Kings offer to NY for them to trade their best offensive weapon? I don't buy that as a rumor, more like wishful thinking.

Ditto.

Where did the Gabs thing originally come from anyway?

Conspiracy theorists thinking the Rangers will make room for Kovalchuk by trading Gaborik.

Schenn and Simmonds? Doesn't make much sense.
